Surviving Tip #1 from David O’Neal in Hernando County.
Do you have a Slower computer that gives you trouble when you are trying to Play (Stream) a video? If so I have the solution for you.
Change the selection to " Stand-Alone Application".
What this does is when you go to view a video it will open it up in either Windows Media Player or Quicktime (depending on your preferences) instead of opening in the Internet Explorer. This is helpful because it takes less system resources to open
by its self then to open up in Internet Explorer. Don’t forget to save the changes!
And don’t forget to share this tip, document it, and report it back to Danielle for the chance to win a Discovery Education Suvival Pack!
***Disclaimer: I was excited over this tip because back home we had pathetically slow computers in our elementary school. Our survivor tip was to download. So I checked with Implementation and the rep that I talked to could not find any proof of this. I asked what was the point in a seperate player and he said it use to be for controls, to allow people to stop, rewind, and pause the movie. That’s now built in to the new unitedstreaming. However, David was a technician before he became a Technology Coordinator at a school. So can someone tell me to verify this information? It’s worth a 128 usb drive. Just leave the comments below.
